Bastia was established by the Genoese as their capital of the island in the late 14th century when they founded a citadel there. It is now the island's second largest city after Ajaccio. There are several beautiful baroque churches and chapels in the city including the St. John the Baptist Church built in an early baroque style. The bell tower of the historic citadel offers great views of the port. The former Governor's Palace houses the Museum of Corsican Ethnography that features displays of the island's natural and human history and culture.

Outside the city are some of Corsica's most famous vineyards, the impressive massifs of the Cap Corse, the luxury resort town of Saint-Florent and Lake Biguglia along the coast with impressive varieties of water birds. The surrounding hills are a great place for a hike along well-planned trails.
